Re: [videoblogging] no video iPod?

I used to own a Nokia 3650. Some of you may know what happened to it…
http://www.bikesagainstbush.com/blog/hardball.html

It was fun to capture video with my phone and email it or post it on a
TextAmerica blog — quality was shit, but fun to play with. But, I
never really used it to watch other video content — other than
self-created videos. Maybe this was because there wasn't much
available that I'd want on my phone. Or, maybe because I didn't want
to wait to download stuff over GPRS (slow and annoying).

I think I would be way more likely to subscribe to a blog rather than
traditional media content. Watching movie trailers isn't appealing to
me… Maybe I'm not quite the standard consumer, but I'm probably not
alone on this list.
